Campus NOW invites participation
September 1998

The National Organizational for Women is an organization of women and men dedicated to achieving equality for women. University of Florida/Santa Fe Community College Campus National Organization For Women (Campus NOW) is dedicated to fighting for the rights of women at U.F. and S.F.C.C., as well as the community. We believe that the root of women's problems are political, and that women's conditions can be improved by uniting and fighting in a public, political way. Our committees include the Rape Action Committee (RAC), Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action Team (ARRAT), Tabling, Flyering, Fundraising, and Phone tree.
